DJ Maj, of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band, recently rolled out a Family Dance Party on his Instagram stories @playjamusic to bring people together.
The party was so successful that he has expanded the concept and partnered with artists including TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, and more via their Insta story social media platforms.
“Originally I didn’t plan to do more of these parties, but after the first one, the response I got from people who were really struggling with being at home, who lost jobs, who were fearful of what is happening, opened my eyes to how this could really help some people and start a conversation about mental health – something I’ve been passionate about for years,” said DJ Maj in a release.missing or outdated ad config
With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, DJ Maj is excited to continue the parties each weekend and is now also doing virtual meet ‘n greets to connect more on a personal level after each party. The current May schedule includes Gotee Records, @Gotee (5/8), TobyMac, @TobyMac (5/9), Mandisa @MandisaOfficial (5/14), TobyMac (5/16), We Are Messengers/@weare1movement (5/22), and TobyMac (5/23).

As DJ Maj states, “It’s ok to not be ok. But, not having tools to process times of personal loss tends to result in an emotionally calloused existence. It all accumulates and we eventually pop. I’ve learned the importance of keeping the connection between our hearts, our emotions, and our minds unsevered. When we pause, examine, and dialogue, it begins the process of healing in many forms. I hope this tune and these Family Dance Parties can continue to bring joy, inspire, and provoke healing.”
